"Davyd Chong wins Channel NewsAsia's Get Rea! song contest"

Saturday, 28 February 2004

SINGAPORE: A full-time national serviceman has emerged as the winner in Channel NewsAsia's Get Rea! song writing competition, beating over 130 others to walk away with the top prize.

Viewers were invited to vote for their favourite song from 10 finalists shortlisted.

And Davyd Chong's 'Make It Through' was a clear favourite from the word go.

For weeks, it stayed in the number one spot based on SMS votes cast by viewers, slipping to position number two only on one day in the almost month-long contest.

In the one month since voting started, Get Rea! received more than 6,000 SMSes.

These made up 40 percent of the total score, while a panel of judges accounted for the remaining 60 percent.

And, most of the judges also picked Davyd's song.

Still, the aspiring musician was speechless when the Get Rea! team surprised him with the results at his camp on Friday.

Davyd's song was one of 137 entries Get Rea! received for the competition.

It will be the theme song for the reality-based current affairs show, which airs three times a week.

Davyd won for himself a trip to Bali and it is for two persons. - CNA - Channel NewsAsia, Singapore

"S'poreans & M'sians GET IN TUNE for London musical"

Monday, 11 September 2006

SINGAPOREANS and Malaysians may sometimes bicker, but half a world away on a theatre stage, they will be united.

Next February, Singaporean and Malaysian students in London will be putting up Merdeka: The Rock Musical, about the turmoil in Malaya during the period leading up to independence in the '60s.

The show's director, Singaporean Marcus Lim, 23, said that while Singapore and Malaysia may not see eye-to-eye on certain issues, 'on the ground', there are no real issues between the people.

'I think that this is a good time for us to collaborate and relive the real issues that people in those times faced,' he added.

The musical's producer is Malaysian Fauziah Marzuki, a third-year business management student at London's Kings College.

Marcus said his friends were initially apprehensive about the project.

'When we were writing the script, people kept telling us to be careful because of the sensitivity of the topic but I reiterate, we aren't discussing the political aspect,' said the literature and film student.

The musical, he said, was to 'show people that we aren't so different'.

It took the production team four months to put it together and it will play over three nights at London's Greenwood Theatre.

Casting is still ongoing for the five main parts and 10 supporting roles.

Said Marcus: 'If you are a Singaporean or Malaysian who studies in London, we'd love to have you on the team.'

And yes, do expect rock music.

Imperial College electrical engineering major Andrew Liew, 23, said: 'There will be hard-hitting parts like the scenes with riots... So the music tends to get heavier for this part.'

King's College law student Davyd Chong, 23, said: 'We are trying to find sponsors and are working on a really tight budget.'

And if all goes well, they plan to bring the musical here next July.

Scarlet Eclipse is a Symphonic Rock band from Singapore. Founded recently in June 2007 by award-winning composer Davyd Chong, the band performed their debut song "In Between" at the 1st Compass Musical Extravaganza 2007 in Singapore, held at the Chamber of the Arts House. They are currently in the midst of producing their first album.

The name "Scarlet Eclipse" is inspired by the book of Revelation, verses 12-13: "...there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; and the stars of the sky fell to the earth..." These are some of the signs that are predicted to come to pass, ushering in the end of the age. Likewise, in this world constantly in a flux where there is much confusion and uncertainty, along with disasters and unrest, it sometimes feels like the world is about to end for some of us.

With influences from renown bands like Evanescence, Within Temptation, and Nightwish, Scarlet Eclipse would like to be that voice reflecting concerns and connecting this generation with music that moves hearts and opens minds. The band is always amazed by the bravery, human capacity and steel to weather any storm, and it is this note of hope that resonates strongest in their songs.
